Annual Student Research Symposium

2014 Student Research Project Symposium
The 22nd Annual Ohio Space Grant Consortium (OSGC) Student Research Symposium will be held on Friday, April 4, 2014, at the Ohio Aerospace Institute (OAI) in Cleveland, Ohio. The Symposium is an integral part of the OSGC Scholarship/Fellowship Program, and attendance is required for all supported students.

2013 Symposium Group Photo At the Symposium, undergraduate and graduate students present the research they accomplished during the preceding academic year and are prepared to discuss their research project with faculty, students, and other attendees. The research should be presented by giving sufficient background material so that it is understandable to someone not knowledgeable in the research area presented. Please keep in mind this is to be an enjoyable experience and will be noncompetitive.

Senior Scholars and Fellows will deliver 15-minute oral presentations including a Question and Answer session. Junior, Community College, and Education Scholars will prepare posters illustrating their research projects/lesson plans and field questions during the poster session.

NOTE: If you are using an Internet site for directions, be mindful that they may INCORRECTLY route you through NASA Glenn Research Center. Note that you will not be able to drive through NASA Glenn to reach OAI with the directions provided by MapQuest without a NASA badge!!! Security is very tight at the Center, and NASA security will not make exceptions to this rule. This will cost you valuable time, so anyone needing directions, please contact OAI at 440.962.3000 for assistance with directions.

OSGC will pay for the cost of the room only. Any additional charges, such as telephone calls or other incidentals charged to the room must be covered personally by the occupant(s). Students will have double occupancy. It is imperative that you mark your registration form appropriately, indicating that you do indeed need a room and, if applicable, with whom you prefer to room.


Travel Expenses
Contact your campus representative, or the OSGC Main Office regarding travel reimbursement.

Advisors
OSGC encourages faculty advisors to attend the Symposium, but will not be able to cover their travel and lodging expenses. Please remind your advisor to register if he/she does intend to come. That way, we can be certain to have adequate refreshments.
